鍾鼎邦 Chung Ting-pang, 前輩: 黃玉階


Taiwanese man detained in China returns home

TAIPEI: A Taiwanese man who had been detained in China for nearly two months returned to the island on Saturday, Taiwanese authorities said, in a case that led to protests at home and drew international concerns.
Chung Ting-pang, a follower of the Falungong spiritual movement and a technology company manager, had not been seen since he checked in for his return flight from mainland China on June 18, according to his relatives. “Chung Ting-pang came back to Taiwan today after the government actively negotiated with the Chinese side,” said the Mainland Affairs Council, Taiwan’s top China policy-making body, without elaborating.
China’s state-run Xinhua news agency had said authorities suspected that Chung obtained classified documents, brought in broadcasting equipment and worked to sabotage television services on the mainland. Xinhua later said that Chung, suspected of endangering national security and public safety, had “confessed and shown remorse”. Relatives said he might have been forced to confess. afp



Taiwanese man detained in China returns home
TAIPEI — A Taiwanese man who had been detained in China for nearly two months returned to the island on Saturday, Taiwanese authorities said, in a case that led to protests at home and drew international concerns.
Chung Ting-pang, a follower of the Falungong spiritual movement and a technology company manager, had not been seen since he checked in for his return flight from mainland China on June 18, according to his relatives.
"Chung Ting-pang came back to Taiwan today after the government actively negotiated with the Chinese side," said the Mainland Affairs Council, Taiwan's top China policy-making body, without elaborating.
China's state-run Xinhua news agency had said authorities suspected that Chung obtained classified documents, brought in broadcasting equipment and worked to sabotage television services on the mainland.
Xinhua later said that Chung, suspected of endangering national security and public safety, had "confessed and shown remorse". Relatives said he might have been forced to confess.
Chung's family had appealed to the United States to secure his release while his supporters were seen at all spots along the route of a top Chinese negotiator who was in Taipei earlier this week to sign an investment deal.
China banned the Falungong in 1999 and strictly prohibits its activities.
Advocates say that the Chung case marks a rare instance in which Beijing has targeted someone not from the mainland.

陳荷:鍾鼎邦的故事


最近,「鍾鼎邦」突然成為Google搜索的熱門關鍵字,因為這位現年53歲、新竹一家科技公司的經理6月中前往中國大陸探親,卻遭到中共羅織罪名 逮捕,迄今身陷囹圄。鍾鼎邦台大剛畢業的女兒鍾愛和目前就讀清大的兒子鍾群救父心切,在臉書上發起「懇請台灣政府、海內外各界善心人士協助援救我爸爸鍾鼎 邦」聲援活動,目前已有超過萬人連署表示支持。這件事情引發國際人權團體的廣泛關注,透過國際媒體報導後,已經成為全球矚目的重大人權迫害事件。
鍾鼎邦為甚麼要去大陸?他又為甚麼會遭中共綁架?
故事就從鍾鼎邦的名字說起。
「鼎邦」在台灣
「鼎邦」是父親鍾承汪老先生為他取的名字,意思是「鼎立家邦」,也就是希望他「成為國家的棟梁」。
冥冥中,鍾鼎邦似乎自然而然地走上了這條父親期許他的道路。
鍾 鼎邦天資聰穎,小學、國中成績一直名列前茅,高中時順利考上建國中學。從小就對機械很感興趣的他,常常將家裡的手錶、鬧鐘、收音機拆解後重新組裝。高中 時,雖然在課業上不怎麼認真,大半時間都花在管樂社裡吹法國號,但高三聯考前「臨陣磨槍」,還是考上了交通大學控制工程學系。大學時鍾鼎邦因為熱衷古典音 樂,延續著幼時喜歡拆解機械的習慣,甚至自行組裝了音響。大學畢業服完兵役後,鍾鼎邦繼續考入交大控制工程研究所並順利完成碩士學位。
由於鍾鼎邦是家中長子,弟妹們說,非常受到大哥的照顧。舉一個小例子:弟妹們不論高中、大學聯考,都是由他陪考、打點,爸媽很少操心。
而如同許多交大、清大校友畢業後直接投入新竹科學園區,鍾鼎邦也進入園區一家大企業就職。後來他和同事自行創業,開設了自己的公司專業研發工業用控制器,一直到現在。
不僅照顧著家人,對於在經濟發展上以「中小企業」立國的台灣來說,鍾鼎邦可說是台灣科技產業的實戰人才。
照顧家人,為國貢獻心力──「鼎立家邦」,鍾鼎邦基本上做到了。
「鼎邦」在中國
但是,賦予鍾鼎邦的使命,不止在台灣,還延伸到大陸。
原來,鍾鼎邦的父親鍾承汪老先生原籍江西省南康縣,年輕時響應國民政府「十萬青年十萬軍」的號召投筆從戎,1949年隨政府來台。
鍾承汪老先生來台前已經成家,育有一子。來台後獨身十多年,直到覺得返鄉無望後才再娶,並育有兩男兩女。鍾鼎邦就是台灣的長子。
台 灣政府開放大陸探親前夕,鍾老先生曾透過關係與大陸家鄉取得聯繫,設法至香港與大陸妻子會面,才得知其實還有一子,也就是大陸共有兩名兒子,且都已成家立 業,老大有三女一男,老二有二女一男。此後開放探親,鍾老先生開始資助大陸親人,鼓勵鄉下的孫子努力上大學以改變戶籍,謀得更好生活。對於讀書,鍾老先生 承諾無條件全力支持。
1997年,鍾老先生因肝臟突發性破裂送醫。臨終前,仍念念不忘大陸親人。鍾鼎邦承諾父親會代為照顧大陸親人。此後,他持續資助大陸親人,讓侄兒女都受到專科以上教育,多人大學畢業,一人研究所畢業。期間並多次代父返鄉探親。
2001年,鍾鼎邦開始修煉法輪功。由於1999年中共開始迫害法輪功後情勢險惡,2003年以後他就不再進入大陸探親。
最 近因為大陸親人屢次邀請,由於心繫父親的遺志宿願,鍾鼎邦終於在暌違大陸親人九年後,於6月15日再度隻身前往江西南康老家。此次大陸之行,僅在老家待二 日餘,期間和親人一起參觀當地家具城與蔣經國故居,其餘時間都待在大陸家裡。6月18日,鍾鼎邦按計畫回台,不料卻在贛州機場入關後遭到非法扣押。後經大 陸親人設法找到國安單位,才被告知羈押理由是要他「協助調查法輪功」。
6月26日,中共官媒新華網發布消息稱鍾鼎邦「涉嫌從事危害國家安全、危害公共安全的犯罪」,因他「向大陸郵寄廣播電視插播器材並唆使大陸居民從事破壞廣電設施的活動,夥同他人多次利用專業設備攻擊干擾轉播大陸電視節目的衛星信號」。
在與外界隔絕、沒有律師陪同的情況下,這樣的指控完全違反基本人權!退一萬步言,即使確有其事,鍾鼎邦不僅沒有犯罪,反而是一位捍衛正義、為善不欲人知的真英雄!
為甚麼?
在現今的民主社會中,言論、信仰的自由,是憲法保障的基本人權。所有促進言論、信仰自由的努力,向來是廣為世人稱頌的普世高尚行為。
即使在台灣,早年戒嚴統治時期,地下電台、地下民主刊物也擔負起傳播民主自由訊息的使命。
由海外人士組成的「全球互聯網自由聯盟」,致力於開發「破網五劍客」──也就是幫助人們衝破中共網路資訊封鎖長城的五大網路工具軟體:自由門、無界、花園、火鳳凰和世界通,讓人們「翻牆」接收自由世界真實資訊,成為中國甚至中東集權國家的燈塔與希望。
就在現時現地,美國之聲、自由亞洲電台,包括台灣的中央廣播電台,也仍持續地透過短波向中國傳播真相。
以上種種舉動,無疑都被視為是正義之舉、勇者的象徵!
「鼎邦」的使命
那麼,如果鍾鼎邦真如中共所言做了突破資訊封鎖的事,那和以上正義之舉、勇者的象徵有何不同?
「台灣法輪大法學會」在得悉中共新華網無理指控後,隨即發表嚴正聲明,並以華人熟知的「司馬光打破水缸救人」的故事,譴責中共當局並提醒世人:司馬光打破水缸救人,我們是要讚揚他救人?還是要責備他打破水缸?
我 們不知道鍾鼎邦是否為了廣大中國百姓的知情權,利用或協助了插播電視、衛星訊號的方式,將中共鎮壓法輪功的真相,傳遞給受蒙蔽的中國人,制止這場將人迫害 致死的暴行、甚而因活摘人體器官而被稱為「這個星球上從未有過的罪惡」。如果從小喜歡接觸機械的鍾鼎邦真的這麼做了,那麼,他就是不折不扣的現代司馬光!
為了照顧大陸親人、為了中國人的基本人權,他穿越了千山萬水,不遠千里而來……再一次,鍾鼎邦證明了自己不負「鼎立家邦」的天賦使命!

China

Taiwanese Falun Gong supporters take to the streets

Hundreds of demonstrators have called on Taiwan's president to put pressure on China to release a Taiwanese businessman arrested last month for allegedly broadcasting information about Falun Gong.
On Sunday, thousands of people wearing bright yellow shirts or traditional costume followed a brass band wearing blue uniforms. They were holding bright flags and banners. The procession of Falun Gong supporters looked like many across the world commemorating the day the movement, which combines meditative exercises, lessons of morality and a cult of leadership, was banned by China.
On July 22 1999, President Jiang Zemin outlawed the movement which was already very popular in China and Falun Gong supporters started being persecuted.

The sect had provoked the government's ire in April after mobilizing 10,000 supporters for an unannounced demonstration.
Today, anybody who speaks out in favor of Falun Gong in China risks being arrested or worse, said one of the demonstrators, a 60-year-old interior designer named Lin Jiongyi. He demonstrates every weekend against what he calls China's inhumane treatment of Falun Gong supporters. "Many supporters have been jailed or sent to reeducation camps," he said. "This is also true for other religions."
An 'evil cult'

Lin Joingyi is not going to China anytime soon
Beijing rejects allegations that Falun Gong supporters are tortured and killed in China, saying these are "sheer fabrication." However, the movement is officially considered "socially deviant." On the website of the Chinese embassy in Berlin, it is described as an evil cult, "a dark power that is against humanity, society, science and religion."
On Monday, Falun Gong supporters once again took to the streets of Taipei. However, this time it was to demonstrate against their own government. They gathered in front of the presidential palace to call for the release of Bruce Chung.
The Taiwanese businessman was arrested in Ganzhou where he was visiting his relatives last month. The authorities accused him of hijacking the signal of a Chinese TV station to broadcast programs about Falun Gong.
Nobody knows where he is detained. His daughter has appealed to the media and even travelled to the US to lobby for support among Congress members.
"My father did nothing wrong and did not commit a crime. We stand by him. We will appeal to the government every day until he is released. I hope everyone will join us," she said in Taipei.
Accused of not doing enough
President Ma Ying-jeou's government has been accused of not doing enough to secure Bruce Chung's release.

"We have tried everything to get the government to take on this case," said Lin Fengzheng, the head of a foundation that campaigns for legal reform. "No reaction. They just said they were looking into it. But nothing has happened. That's why we have been forced to come out onto the streets and call on President Ma to get Chung out fast."
The government has promised to talk to Beijing about Chung's fate through official channels.
Taiwanese business people have long complained that their passport offers them no protection in China. Falun Gong supporters feel the same. Lin Jiongyi will continue to stay clear of the People's Republic in future.

黃玉階(1850年 4 月 25 日-1918年7月26日),本籍台灣台中1870年學習中醫,1876年執業,1882年全家遷至台灣台北大稻埕繼續從事中醫。1895年台灣日治時期開始後,他則繼續於杏林服務,並於1897年正式取得日本政權發給的中醫師執照。
除了醫術之外,黃玉階對台灣社會最大貢獻在於推動台灣社會現代化。例如:他於1900年創立台北天然足會,即被認為是廢除台灣女子纏足的關鍵公益團體。除了「放足」之外,他也認為「斷髮不改裝」有助於社會風俗改良,因此成立了宗旨為「剪辮髮,仍穿唐裝」的「斷髮不改裝會」。

黃玉階(1850–1918)逝
漢醫執照第一人
1897 年,日閥曾調查當時台灣漢醫(中醫)人數,計 1,070 人,發給漢醫執照,而領得第一號漢醫執照的人,是大稻埕黃玉階。

黃 玉階,字冥華,1850 年 4 月 25 日,生於彰化縣大肚保五闊港(今台中縣梧棲附近),他如何學得望聞問切的本事,傳說紛紜。23 歲(1872 年),他追隨先天派傳教師蔡運昌數月,聆其闡發玄微,宣演妙諦,他即皈依佛教先天派,終身持齋不娶,而以普渡眾生為職志。

23 歲(1873 年),他領受恩堂,成為先天派掌堂人。1883 年,他在台北大稻埕創設「普願社宣講所」,並於全台各地設立分所,講說善書。

霍亂、鼠疫(黑死病)傳染病施虐台灣時,黃玉階倡議防治、合藥施濟,救人無數,他還印贈「霍亂吊腳痧醫書」、「黑死病疙瘩症瘟治法新編」,流布全台。

黃玉階身為良醫外,還是一位績效斐然的社會改革運動家,1899 年,首創「天然足會」,掃除纏足陋習;1911 年與吳昌才發起「斷髮不改裝會」,終將清廷強迫漢人留在腦袋後的辮髮給剪除了。

黃玉階以佛門弟子,踏進仕途,曾任大稻埕區長、大龍峒區長及地方委員;明治天皇崩逝,又曾與辜顯榮、蔡蓮舫、許廷光奉派參加葬禮,並覲見新皇大正天皇,而為人不諒解,然誠如王詩琅的公道話,黃玉階實為台灣的功勞者:
「乙 未割台後日人對本省人士,曾竭盡手段懷柔,其目的不外乎順利推進其統治。當這時候,本省知識分子之苦楚,自非筆墨所能形容。然而當此省民苦難的開頭,一面 善與日人周旋應付,一面謀取同胞之福祉,其苦心孤詣,更非常人所能做到。黃玉階就是日人入據台灣初期,善能運用這種艱鉅的方法,為同儕謀取福利,而且建樹 特別多的人物。……實在是一位集德望、慈善、革新、宗教、仁術於一身的奇人。

是的,先生一生的事蹟,無論那一項都足以使先生在近代台灣史上立一席之地,對這一位在異族殖民統治下的偉人,誰有資格貶抑一句?」

1918 年今日,黃玉階仙逝,得年六十有九。
